[Mageia-discuss] Bugsquad team organisation

Dear all,

One of the more important but often overlooked tasks for projects like 
Mageia is the handling of bug reports received and follow up given to 
them. Quick resolution of reported problems and the proper routing of 
these reports is important to help Mageia improve in quality and grow in 
mindshare within the larger Linux community.

Since Mageia started over 2400 bugs and other issues needing our attention 
have been filed in our bugzilla ( http://bugs.mageia.org/ ). A very 
impressive job has been done so far by the various members of the bugsquad 
and the packagers and sysadmins who have had reports assigned to them. 
Most impressive has been the bulk of work that Ahmad did by himself since 
the bugsquad got started under his leadership. Due to time constraints he 
unfortunately announced last month that he had to step down from this 
position. Since that time the bugsquad team has been without a leader and 
a representative for that team within the Mageia council.

Through this email I hope to solicit some help for and interest in this 
team (hence the Cc to the Mageia discuss list) as well as to discuss 
within the team (on the bugsquad mailing list) where we want to go with it 
and if anyone is willing to take over the lead for this team.

Should you have any interest in the bugsquad team, please see the page on 
our wiki for information on the triage team and how to join the mailing 
list. The address for that is 

In order to keep the discussion in one place, I'd appreciate it if follow 
ups to this message solely go to the bugsquad list.

I'm interested in hearing your thoughts.

Thank you for your time and attention, thank you Ahmad for all the hard 
work done so far!

Sincere regards,
